Justin Timberlake is releasing his first autobiography and the title is making us violently nauseous

Uuuuuggggghhhhhh.....

That was our gut response when we first clocked the title of Justin Timberlake's upcoming auto-biography.

He's already had a bit of a shitty 2018: his album Man Of The Woods was terrible, and did you even know he already released the first single to the follow-up album? We're betting you didn't, because pretty much everyone flat-out ignored it existed:

Plus, did you know he was in a movie this year with Kate Winslett? Because he was. It was released here in March, but nobody went to see it because it was directed by Woody Allen, and Wonder Wheel, which cost $25 million to make, ended up with $15 million at the worldwide box office.

So, yeah, not a great 2018 for JT so far. And now he's adding to that with his new book, Hindsight & All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me.

Uuuuuuuuuugggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh...

In a statement via publishers Harper Collins, Timberlake said of the book that: "I can’t help that my music shows who I am in this moment, what I’m drawn to, what I’m wondering about. I don’t want to help it.

"What you hear in the words, what you feel in those songs — that’s what I was feeling when I wrote them. I want you to see me, just like I want to see you."

Who is he talking to? Is he talking to... me? (glances wildly around the room) He can SEE me?? Are there cameras???

Following up on that, Harpers Collins themselves had this to say:

"Justin discusses many aspects of his childhood, including his very early love of music and the inspiration behind many of his hit songs and albums. He talks about his songwriting process, offering the back story to many of his hits.

"He muses on his collaborations with other artists and directors, sharing the details of many performances in concert, TV comedy, and film. He also reflects on who he is, examining what makes him tick, speaking candidly about fatherhood, family, close relationships, struggles, and his search to find an inner calm and strength."
